OK then - it will be a long week.

We went to pick up the dog we are going to holiday foster.  She is a really cute little Boxer mix.  I really am  not sure where they get the Boxer.  She looks more Dalmation to me, but then...

She was a perfect little lady bringing her home.  She sat in the back seat just like a little lady.  I found a collar that fit her so I could get the harness off.  I  let her nose around the breakfast room on her own a little - but still on the leash.  THEN - I took her outside.

I let her go with the leash attached (thank God).  I forgot the neighborhood black cat was lazing under the diving board.  Well - he wasn't lazing long.  Then he went under the deck - and Layla tried to follow.  I worry about that side of the yard anyway because the way the deck is raised, the fence is only about 4 or 5 feet.  I could just see the cat jumping over the fence and Layla going right after him.

Fortunately I was able to grab the leash and get her away.  We came in the house, and she is in the crate right now.  She is completely overwhelmed to begin with.  She  needs to just be in a quiet place for a while to begin some acclimatization.  Yes??

Well - it will be an interesting week - to say the least.

Oh, good for you for fostering. I'm sure it will be a good week for both of you!

Sounds like you're the one who needed her in a quiet place for awhile. She was having fun chasing the cat. LOL
